This dries out and clears up a blemish almost over night. It's my go to for hormonal breakouts. The bottle also makes it fun to use.

It's okay. I was super excited to try this because I've only heard good things but I found that it didn't really work all that well.

By far the best spot treatment. The only downside is the extremely strong sulfur smell, but that's the ingredient that makes it good!

This is a good alternative to the origins drying cream! It's much cheaper but I prefer the more natural approach that origins takes!

I like this. It does dry my acne spots fairly quickly. That being said I feel like it sometimes make some acne scars in the process.

I use this for my worse breakouts and its really good. Takes about 2-3 nights use on a breakout to see a real difference in the spot.

I've heard a lot about this drying lotion or like other girls call it "pimple cream". How many of you have tried it and honestly have had a good out come? Would be nice to hear from the girls next door 🙂
